Yep. Part of it might be imposter syndrome, tbh

It’s hard but negotiating is a valuable skill to learn.

Yes and no. Bringing it up can definitely be uncomfortable, but as long as you can back up what you're asking for, you should be confident enough to take the leap. Good luck!

As someone who absolutely hates these kinds of conversations, it's very tough. I didn't ask for a long time because I assumed my work would be recognized...not so. Ended up getting paid the least while doing the most work so I've learned my lesson now!

Yup, I’m awful at it. I’m always paranoid that everyone around me thinks I don’t deserve what I’m asking for. I definitely need to work on being more confident in my abilities.

It’s uncomfortable but I always speak my mind on what I want - I’ve come to realize that no one gets anything they don’t ask and push for. Not gonna get left behind because I kept my mouth shut about what I want.

like

YES! I always have solid reasons for why I deserve the raise, but the part I really struggle with is finding a way to start the conversation that seems natural. Or at least, not so awkward that it hurts my chances of actually getting the raise. Lurking for advice.

like

Never. I'm worth more than any number they can put down.

I just started at a new company 2 months ago with the expectation of having 3-4 people on my team. However, my team size will be increasing to 7.

We only have pay review in January of each year. Would it be crazy to ask about a raise later this month?
